Israeli bulldozers demolish Palestinian house in Jerusalem neighborhood


JERUSALEM, September 5, 2018 (WAFA) – Bulldozers from the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem Wednesday demolished a Palestinian home in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan.

Israeli police broke into Silwan, cordoned off the area of the targeted house and prevented people from reaching it as municipality bulldozers proceeded to demolish the house owned by the Abu Sway family under the pretense of building without license.

Using the pretext of illegal building, Israel demolishes houses on a regular basis to restrict Palestinian expansion in occupied Jerusalem.

At the same time, the municipality and government build tens of thousands of housing units in illegal settlements in East Jerusalem for Jews with a goal to offset the demographic balance in favor of the Jewish settlers in the occupied city.
